Rainwater harvesting ex situ

Rainwater harvesting ex situ

  • Rainwater harvesting ex situ

    Sectors:
    Objective:

    Most precipitation that falls on human settlements is lost to the atmosphere through evapo-transporation (evaporation plus transpiration of water taken up by plants), or runs into rivers away from settlements before it can be used. In some water-rich regions, particularly wealthy regions with centralized water infrastructure, these losses may not be a major concern. However, in many water-poor areas, small-scale collection infrastructure can contribute greatly to the volume of freshwater available for human use.
